Are California’s utilities ready for their customers to charge electric vehicles (EV) in their homes? It’s a question that Pleasant Grove High School’s IDEA Academy students will answer during their spring presentation to SMUD. During the event, students asked industry professionals from SMUD, Elk Grove Ford and Sacramento Electric Vehicle Association about the EV market, demographics and who is likely to purchase an EV. Students also looked under the hood at each car’s components.

This hands-on assignment was developed in collaboration with SMUD and long-time EGUSD partner, Ford Next Generation Learning (Ford NGL), and is a component of an on-going challenge-based learning project with SMUD and Ford NGL.
